Mary was a care-free soul and could be found singing Karaoke and dancing to what she called “The Newfie Jig”. Mary was always looking for a new adventure. She will be remembered for her smile, her laughter and her keen sense of humour!

She had a passion and love for her family, her grandchildren referred to her as Nan or Nana and she loved spending time with them.

Stories she told will live on in us, leaving us with cherished memories and love in our hearts.
